A precautionary MRI on the injured back of
Encarnacion slugged his 33rd home run of the season Friday and is back in the starting lineup Saturday, so the minor injury hasn't cost him playing time. He has hit .262/.350/.552 with 33 home runs and 89 RBI in 446 at-bats.
Lind's back locked up, leaving him likely unavailable for Saturday's matchup with the Yankees, but he should be fine in a day or two. He has hit .321/.384/.489 with six home runs and 38 RBI in 274 at-bats.
Ellsbury is expected to undergo an MRI Saturday after being removed from action the previous day with a hamstring injury. He has hit .271/.328/.419 with 16 home runs, 70 RBI and 39 stolen bases in 575 at-bats.
Brown was scratched from Friday's lineup due to a right hand sprain, and he appears set to miss a second straight game with the issue. He has hit .237/.288/.356 with 10 home runs, 61 RBI and seven stolen bases in 452 at-bats.
Peralta hasn't started since Sept. 5 due to a back injury, but he was able to pinch hit Friday. He has hit .292/.325/.459 with seven home runs, 34 RBI and six stolen bases in 305 at-bats during his rookie campaign.
Hamilton is day-to-day while recovering from the injury. He has hit .263/.331/.414 with 10 home runs and 44 RBI in 338 at-bats.
Ryu will likely miss the remainder of the regular season, but he's hoping his shoulder injury will recover enough to allow him to pitch in the playoffs. He owns a 3.38 ERA and 139:29 K:BB ratio in 152 innings.
Duffy hasn't pitched since Sept. 6 due to a shoulder issue, but he's listed as the team's probable starter for Monday's game in Cleveland. As long as he doesn't suffer a setback over the weekend, he should return to action Monday. Duffy owns a 2.42 ERA and 108:50 K:BB ratio in 141 1/3 innings.
While his power is down from his recent seasons in New York, Cano continues to get it done at the plate. If he can finish the season with his current .321 batting average or better, it'll represent his best mark since his second major-league season in 2006. Cano has hit .321/.387/.465 with 14 home runs, 78 RBI and a career-high 10 stolen bases in 564 at-bats.
